Help needed- non molestation order
my wife has for a non molestation order against me.
Ive got a court date but due to it being weekend and bank holiday I don’t know what I need to take with me.
Im going to appeal as I don’t agree to it, it’s all lies, she even contradicts herself in her in own writing multiple times.
What do I need to take with me? Do I give my own evidence on/ can I take my own evidence with me?
once I’ve disagreed with her statement do I have to go back to court afterwards on a later date?
My head is a mess I can’t think straight, I’ve never been to court and I don’t know what to expect
Any help would be grateful
You can take a brief 2 page position statement, explaining the situation and whether the non mol should be granted or not.
At hearing judge will give you option to accept non mol or to contest it if you disagree.
What is the hearing that you're going to, and what date/how far away is it?
If you contest it, they will more than likely give you another date to come back and go through all of the statements and evidence etc. I wish I had contested mine after what I went through, but I accepted it on a non admissions basis so nothing was proven, this was just so I could speed up the process to see my children
@justaminute it was applied for end of last week and the hearing was at the start of this week. It was to make sure there wasn’t any immediate danger, which was ruled out. So another one has been scheduled and solicitors will be attending as well.
I presume she has got legal aid for this? You don't need a solicitor as you can self represent. Did you attend this week? If there is to be a hearing, the court usually restricts the allegations to about 5 and asks for them to be put in the format of a Scott schedule. You can offer to accept undertakings if you don't want to go through the process. There are helpful guides on the advicenow.org.uk website. It would be helpful to know what stage you are at
